    In the same vein as Infestation, but this time includes stuff like Popeye, KISS, and the Ghostbusters.

    Might be cool.

    Oh man. It won't happen, but would kinda be awesome if this was in the main canon, and the Martians were the Galactic Council's invasion force to pacify the violent and weakened Cybertronians once and for all.

    The Galactic Council seems to frown upon violent and warlike races. The Martians are worse than the Cybertronians! Maybe not in scale of destruction...but in aggression. The real problem is the vast power imbalance. Nothing short of the Galactic Empire or Daleks would stand a chance against the united might of Cybertron.

    I'm in, as long as it's not a 12 issue series or a 40-part crossover.

    I'm interested in seeing on how the Martian's fatal weakness to opera will be used against them.

    Maybe Tarn saves the day?

    ^ That. That and your sig.

    I"m still pissed they "killed" Kup in Infestation, an event I had no interest in, so uh, let's keep it canon but minimize the downstream implications to MTMTE and RID?

    Can we please get James Roberts as the writer on this? The man knows his TF comedy.

    Hahaha, please God...tell me this is a stand-alone mini, and not crossing into RID or MTMTE.

    By the way, you guys might want to check out what OTHER properties are attached to this right now. Such as POPEYE, Ghostbusters and KISS.

    Seriously.

    The aliens? Completely screwed. No one messes with Popeye. No one.

    A sort of silly idea like this would be PERFECT for James Roberts, if he's writing it I'm probably buying it.

    So this really is Infestation 3, but with the Martians.

    is there any bizarr concepts IDW won't try?

    How about "Transformers vs. The Masters Of The Universe".

    ...or Trypticon meets Bambi

    ....or Aliens vs. Mars Attacks vs. E.T. vs Mac n Me vs. Attack Of The Killer Clows vs The Transformers.
